SCP/SFTP on Windows

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I just installed the slimmed down version of OpenSSH on a Windows NT
server (hope to get rid of FTP in the near future). /

The SSH part works fine...the SCP and SFTP part does not.  If I use
putty sftp to connect I get as far as typing in my password.  After
that, I get an error:

Unable to initialise SFTP: could not connect.

If I use WinSCP (despite the lack of a plugin for the newest version of
the server, which might be the problem for WinSCP), it asks if I'm sure
there's an SFTP server running.

Any thoughts?

As it turns out, one of the registry keys (Root - native) was written
as: Z:\directory/bin

Changing it to Z:\directory\bin fixed the problem.
